Boggo Road Gaol

Boggo Road Gaol (Jail) opened in 1883 and was home to notorious escapologist "Slim" Halliday and Whiskey Au Go Go bombers James Finch and John Stuart. Dramatic escapes, riots, hunger-strikes and roof-top protests led to the prison's official closure in 1992. The remaining section - heritage listed No. 2 Division - was decommissioned in 1989. It's walls are covered in authentic graffiti - including strong imagery and language - left by frustrated prisoners in the turbulent 1980s.
